The lumbering, crushing chug of Spain’s Hex is a joy to behold, and their newest record ‘God Has No Name’ brings the finest Bolt Thrower worship to a doom laden set of riffs. Far from being a one trick pony however, these death/doom titans entrust their work to Transcending Obscurity, who have released it just in the last few days.

Opening with a mesmerising build to the crush of ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, you can feel a really old school death metal vibe groaning through each riff. There is a real heft to some of these songs, particularly the thunderous ‘Worshipping Falsehood’, and the titanic ‘All Those Lies That Dwells…’. There is cold, clean guitar that oozes throughout, lending a foggy doom atmosphere to the deathly rumble, and the haunting female vocals in ‘Where Gods Shall Not Reign’ give a good dose of old My Dying Bride vibes too. Hex are both brutal as fuck, and yet play with a gothic delicacy that enhances their ruinous assault.

‘God Has No Name’ is a record that neither skimps on the brutality nor just hamers you with one generic style. A layered, multifacted record, Hex should be proud of their accomplishment here. But hey, a band who cranks out some serious Bolt Thrower riffs leaves the Killchain as putty in their bloodstained hands. Excellent.
